Bold Or Italic Studio, founded by designer Wei Li, made possible the fact of “licking a cactus or a virus” with this popsicles project, adapting colors and shapes of different cacti and viruses. He has smartly associated cacti’s shapes to certain viruses’ shapes such as HIV and staphylocoques. Water and sugar popsicles, with an idea that influences a bit the taste.

Process : The shapes of the popsicles are first modeled and 3D-printed using Objet Connex 500 3D printer. The 3D-printed shapes are then used as originals to make silicone molds. These silicone molds, mostly two-part while a few four-part, are used to cast popsicles.
